Thousands of petroglyphs can be found in the Nasca-Palpa region. Many of them bear a high
resemblance to the recently discovered geoglyphs dated to the Paracas Period (800–200 B. C.), obviously the
forerunners of the famous geoglyphs of the subsequent Nasca Period (200 B. C.–650 A. D.). While the Nasca
geoglyphs are at the focus of numerous scientifi c works, petroglyphs and Paracas geoglyphs have not yet
been the object of investigation.
